What does the 4th item cost? gum = .13 lollipop = .34 chips = .23 soda pop = ? Don't beat on me because its so simple! Fusion

 2003-08-31, 00:25 #6 Fusion_power     Aug 2003 Snicker, AL 26·3·5 Posts Coldfury, Similar questions are in several I.Q. tests. They all rely on some common pattern such as consonants are worth so many cents and vowels are worth a different value. Another I've seen would have each letter valued based on its position in the alphabet. A would be 1, b would be 2, c would be 3, etc. Fusion (hoping those who don't get it will get it now.)
